Hatten Group Sdn Bhd, incorporated in 2008, is Malaysia-based fastest-rising property developer to make a resounding impact in the real estate industry. The group of companies is involved in property development, strategic management and investment.
Hatten, depicting "growth" and "development" in Japanese, was coined by the founders Datuk Wira Eric Tan Eng Huat, Chairman and Colin Tan June Teng, Group Managing Director. Rising from humble beginnings, the duo gained prominence when they took on the challenge to turn around an abandoned project in Melaka, Malaysia. It was a risk that no one else in the industry wanted as the project required massive capital injection with a perceived low success rate.
Armed with firm resolution and great foresight that Melaka's tourism industry will boom, the father-and-son team went against odds to develop Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall (DPMM). DPMM, currently the biggest mall in Melaka with a gross development of 2 million sq ft, is also a major attraction in the World UNESCO Heritage City, drawing millions of foreign and local visitors every year.
In less than five years, Hatten Group has carved a name for itself in the property development sector in Malaysia, being named among the Malaysia Top Property Developers 2012/2013 by iProperty.com.
Hatten Group aims to achieve its vision of being one of the top ten largest property developers by the year 2020. Working towards this, the Group has brought together a team of experienced professionals with expertise from various fields to form the mid-level management of its group member companies.
The ultimate aim of the Group is to develop distinctive assets in the luxury residence, hospitality and retail sectors. The Group is determined to adhere to the highest standards – bringing to the market, products that are distinguished by their innovativeness and quality.
Hatten Group has since rolled out the first phase of Hatten City in redefining contemporary and sustainable lifestyle living for the future of the magnetic historical city. Boasting a gross development value of RM2 billion, Hatten City will be the heartbeat of Melaka, equipped with amenities, gleaming infrastructure and commercial opportunities.
